Rancho Bernardo Crash Leaves Thousands Without Power on Thanksgiving

A Rancho Bernardo crash left thousands of residents without power on Thanksgiving. 

The crash happened at Bernardo Center Drive and Bernardo Heights Parkway at approximately 7 a.m. on Thursday, according to San Diego Police Watch Commander Tony Martinez. 

A car struck a San Diego Gas and Electric electrical box and hit a transformer, officials said. 

As a result, more than 2,000 customers are without power in Rancho Penasquitos and Rancho Bernardo, right as Thanksgiving cooking gets underway. 

By 9 a.m., all but a few dozen customers had power, according to SDG&E.
